I might have to change my mind about production work. After doing wire wraps for all these necklaces and 20 book marks, I'm quite bored with the whole thing. I hope it's OK to sell jewelry tomorrow. Sometimes if you jury into mixed media, you're not allowed to have jewelry too. But people love to buy jewelry, so I like to have some. The bookmarks are a good price too ... $10-15. and I have polymer pens and exacto knives in the same price range. The posties will go for $25, so that should pretty much cover the low end stuff. Oh! and my stab bound books are $15-35.
I think i'm more prepared this time than ever before. I finally printed out my portfolio, which I've been meaning to do for ages. I didn't pack the truck yet, but that's ok. I'll be on my own tomorrow setting up. Maybe it will be less stressful not worrying about someone else while I set up. My friend is going to come at 10 and sit with me for part of the morning. That will be great.
I have to remember that I'll be a bit out of the way, along with all the other new exhibitors. So sales may not be what I hope. But I can kind of get a feel for the show.
I ran out of book cloth tape last night. I went over to the paper source this morning. It took about 25 minutes to find a parking space. Then, of course, they didn't have what I wanted. And neither did any other store in the area. Poo. I hope they're not discontinuing it, because it's my favorite supply ever.
Well, if you're in the area, stop by at the 57th street fair tomorrow!
